Well...I really did worse than I expected with 11 Correct and 8 Wrong for 58% .The average is 69%. Try it. Don't put up the ones you actually got right or wrong as that will give all the right answers to the next player. Good luck!

17 correct, 2 wrong.  I have to say I guessed correctly on about 4. At least 2 were process of elimination.  If Saudi is the most powerful Sunni nation, then Syria had to be the most powerful Shiite nation.     So I did well, but admittedly not because I knew it all so well.

ISLAM:  How much do you know?

I know they need to get their act together and control their own crazies, instead of looking the other way while those crazies kill, torture, behead, bomb, hijack and blow up airplanes, and rant like mad dogs on social media.

That's really all I need to know.

That would be simplifying things too much, the situation is way more complex than that, for instance if we look at IS in Iraq, the surrounding countries cannot intervene for two reasons, the main one is geopolitical as you have Iran and Saudi Arabia that want to establish their influence on the area but the biggest issues here is that any misstep would create a religious war between sunnit and shiite especially that in Iraq things are already hot, the other reason would be becoming a target them self the danger here is not an open war but militia war and terrorist attacks, it is relatively easy for IS members to get into those countries in comparison to the US or European countries. and Of course there many reasons, and this is only one example

No I don't think I did.  I just said they need to control their own crazies.  That's all I need to know because every time I pick up some news paper, magazine or read a current events blog its about some Muslim crazies killing people that are totally somewhere else who don't care about Muslim issues one bit as likely as not.

Just like I don't care  about Sunni and Shiite and Sushi.  Couldn't care less.  That doesn't make me a bigot at all, it just means I have things I do care about and those I really don't.

Look, other people think I'm bad because I don't care about abortion.  (for an example).  Sorry, I'm just being honest.  I just don't care about it one way or the other.  And I really don't care about Sunni or Shiite or Sushi, again, just being honest.

DON'T CARE ONE BIT is way, way different than DISLIKE or HATE or BIGOT, dude.

You perfectly described a part of them,but the other part are people like me and you ,who don't want to kill everything it moves or the persons that don't want to convert to our religion.

Good for you.  When you say "better"...do you mean you did not get them ALL right the second time?Huh   LOL   One would think it would be pretty easy to get them all right the second time.  There aren't even 20 questions.

I wonder if there is a quiz with the differences between orthodox and catholics and if a Muslim will get more than 25% right.

25% right answers to a quiz about the differences between orthodox and catholics is a number way to big,maybe 5%.Lets see maybe there are some muslims on this forum who will  like to answer to this question:
What is the difference between christians orthodox and christians catholics?Tell us atlest 2.

If you have a,b,c,d and you press only answer a you will probably get 25%. That's why I said 25%.

EDITED
 to see if indeed we have a Muslim who has a clue about the differences.
But honestly two of them are so obvious it's hard to believe nobody will notice them.

14 right, 4 wrong - and guessing involved.  Actually, once one has it in mind which group is which (larger overall), some of them fall into place.

Am more curious why 19 total questions instead of 20 (from a testing/scoring point of view).
